Physics 5335 (Physics of Semiconductors)
Homework Assignments & Solutions
You are strongly encouraged to form study groups to work on homework together! This is how physicists work! NO CONSULTATION with people who had the course previously! NO use of problem solutions from previous years is allowed! This is the honor system! Copying solutions will NOT teach you physics!
